Winner: "Best Fitness Walking Shoe for 2013" - Walking.About.com "Reader's Choice" Awards
An excellent choice for brisk fitness walking, light jogging, casual walking and everday wear. The Prospecs 400 series of shoes offers the maximum cushioning and stability within the Prospecs family of shoes. The 400 series is built on a Moveframe(TM) technology, which supports and cushions the foot both up and down throughout your walking stride. The Moveframe core of the shoe acts like a spine guiding your foot forward without rolling in or out. The shock absorbtion of the shoe is very noticeable, and you will feel all the way through your stride. Excellent shoes for daily exercise, power walking, and for people who have occupations that require long hours of walking and standing.
SHAPE magazine published their 2013 Shoe Awards, and gave Prospecs an honorable mention in an article entitled "Sneakers We Love" [April, 2013]. One tester remarked "This shoe made power walking more fun."

I purposely waited to review these sneakers because I wanted to be sure they were as great as they felt from day one... I bought these sneakers back at the beginning of May. I power walk about 20 miles per week and have suffered from shin splits with every pair of sneakers I have ever walked in... well... NOT THESE!! These sneakers have far surpassed my expectations. They give so much support even at the balls of the feet and I did not get shin splits, not even once. I had never heard of Prospecs, actually I googled best power walking sneaker and these came up! Mark at the ShoeShoppe was wonderful. Very helpful, shipped my sneakers immediately (got them in 2 days) and even threw in a free pair of socks. I will be buying my second pair from Mark soon. Thanks!!

MY feet do not hurt!!!!! With ANY other tennis walking shoe I own, the soles of my feet would hurt like crazy and my feet would cramp at night. I have a very high instep. The 405's are lightweight but yet your feet feel secure. Solidly built, not flimsy in any respect. The insole is NOT cushiony but yet very comfortable. So happy with this purchase. Mark, the Superstar sent me an extra pair of shoe strings and a made in USA pair of socks...both in coordinating colors to the shoe! GO MARK!!! What a guy! Mark, thank you for your kindness...the 'gifts' are greatly appreciated and tomorrow is my birthday, June 1st---these delights were my gift to me from me!
thank you so much The SHOE SHOPPE...buy from this retailer...awesome way to do business...
LOVE THIS SHOE!!!

I am 58 years old and shop mostly online. Believe it or not I have never taken the time to write a review although I look at all the other reviews before making purchases. What prompted me to write is the best customer service ever from Mark. What a nice person and so helpful with my choice of sneaker. By the way, the sneakers are awesome too!!!

I work 12 hours as a nurse, am 63 & before I got these shoes I would bring an extra pair of shoes to work, so that I could change during the day. Not anymore. These have great support & cushion. I am so glad I found these. Customer service is awesome.

I have many foot issues - probably wear and tear from so much hiking! - and finally found shoes that give me the support and comfort that I need. The people at Prospecs were amazing to deal with and were very helpful.

I ordered this shoe in (10) my normal size. I found out it has lots of room in the front an needed half a size smaller. I spoke with the owner who gave me all the time needed till he figured out my needs and guided me to the right shoe, which was 420 grey with yellow color. because it had less room in the front which i needed.
I walk at least 6 days a week 5 miles a day, and this shoe is absolutely great. it is stable and comfortable much easier on the joints.

This shoe is comfortable and has good cushioning. I walk 24-30 miles a week and they great. I like the extra pair of shoestrings. Mark at the Shoe Shoppe is great to work with. Thank you for the pair of walking socks. The service is excellent.

I was skeptical about buying a walking shoe before trying it on because I have that pesky long second toe and a narrow heel. Needless to say I am thrilled.. they shoe fits! It is so comfortable. I wore them the first day ALL day... That never happens. My feet didnt get too hot either, (don't know why) but who cares... I loved them all day long. Thank you so much. I heard that I was the first every order from Oklahoma.. I won't be the last. I'm telling everyone. Thanks for the free socks ;O)
